Above the Heights…


It seems like a fleeting memory but it was warm enough, not too long, that strolling along the water was a good idea. However right now it would be beautiful it would undoubtedly be too cold!
So in memory of the not too distant warm weather behind us (and in our future).. enjoy these photos from a walk through Inwood Hill Park this past fall.

Yesterday we spent the morning hiking on the Boundary trail – a trail just inside of Yellowstone National Park on the Montana side which was a great local find since Yellowstone is largely not pet-friendly :(.

It was a beautiful day with comfortable weather …

…and then headed back to the car and headed west towards the forever potatoes state, Idaho…

Idaho… was a landscape of mostly (pretty much all…) Potato fields…

… which went on FOREVER (literally hours…)..

We ended up in Twin Falls, ID which from the map didn’t look like much, but was the home to a failed motorcycle jump across the Snake River by Evel Knievel in the 1970s. However this little town was breathtaking…

… now on to more familar territory… Lake Tahoe!

So it feels like I was in Chicago a long time ago.. actually it was a season and a few months back but I finally had the chance to upload the photos (yes I know what kinda of photographer am I???)…
